Rihanna’s cousin, 21-year-old Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne, was shot and killed in Barbados Tuesday night, and the singer posted a tribute to him on Instagram.

“RIP cousin... can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms!” she wrote. “Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man!”


At the end of her Instagram post, Rihanna used the hashtag #EndGunViolence.

According to Sky News, Alleyne was walking near his home and was approached by a man who then shot him several times.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
